As a performer, he sings with a warm, soulful voice and has a relaxed, natural stage presence that pulls audiences in and makes his shows intimate and entertaining events.
Born on New Year's Eve, 1958, in Spokane, Washington, David started playing the piano at age eight and the trombone at twelve. During his freshman year of high school, his family moved to Missoula, Montana, and the following year he joined his first rock band as a lead singing keyboard player. He never looked back.
Immediately out of high school, he spent ten years on the road playing the club circuit in the upper midwest and northwest, first with Patriot, where he was the featured singer on the infamous bar single, 'The Rodeo Song', and finally with his own group, The David Levin Band.
Settling in Minneapolis in 1987, he wrote, produced, switched to guitar, worked some straight jobs, flirted with stardom for a couple of years with the raucous rockabilly band, The Screaming Yahoos, working with producers from Nashville and Australia, and then finally released his first solo CD, 'Heaven' in 1997.
Following the successful release of his CD, he was a founding member of the acclaimed acoustic group, The Song Circle. He performed regularly with them in the Minneapolis-St.Paul area until moving to New Mexico in August of 1999.
David is currently living on the Zuni Indian Reservation with his wife, Margret, and their dogs, Sophie and Lucy. He's working on material for a new CD release, putting together a new band, and preparing to take his music out to a wider audience.
In addition to his work as a musician, David has a company called The Best In Us, where he works with executives, managers and sales people as a communications consultant/presentation coach.
